“Oh Lord, Here I am. Send me.” ~ Isaiah 6:8 ~
A few days into the New Year, I was given the opportunity to possibly go to Thailand in June for a short-term missions trip. During this short term missions trip, I would be going with a team that has been doing this exact missions trip for 8 years now. I would be ministering to people in the sex trade and having the opportunity to speak at a Women’s Conference alongside 100 Christian leaders many of which work with ladies and men from the sex trade.
Slavery is not a thing of the past. I was told as a student at Madison Consolidated High School that slavery ended in the 1800s. I was taught in history class that America fought for freedom during the Civil War, signed the emancipation proclamation, and stated that we were “Free, free indeed.” Unfortunately, slavery is thriving more today than at any other point in time. Globally, there is 45 million held in captivity. In Thailand, it is the normality to be in the sex trafficking business if you are providing for your family. There is more than 120,000 and counting men, women, and children who are in captivity through the Human Sex Trade in the Thailand border.
My desire is for every soul and every nation to know who they are and where their identity lies in Jesus! During my short few weeks in Thailand, I pray that I will be the light in the streets. I strive to show the Thai people true pure love that is not perverted, damaged, or broken.
“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps not record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices in truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.” ~ 1 Corinthians 13: 4-8 ~
My needs for this trip are first and foremost prayer partners:
For this trip, I am needing to raise a total of $3,700. This total price covers my air flight, food, conference expenses, and souvenir money.
- Pray that God provides all expenses and finances for this trip.
- Pray for Thailand.
- Prayer over for safety for the team and I.
- Pray for God’s direction for me.
- By February 28, 2019, I need a total of $1,018 for my plane ticket
May God receive all of the Glory, Honor, and Praise.
